Journalistic Malpractice

***Have you seen the news, read the newspapers? Why, this economy is roaring back! Haven't you heard? The media distortion, the Obama hip pocket "journalism" that is going on now is breathtaking. Remember when the unemployment rate under George W. Bush was 4.9%, how the media savaged him, told us how awful the economy was, blah blah blah? Well, folks, apparently 8.3% unemployment is reason to celebrate!

RUSH: There's an interesting story to start with today.  This is a Politico story, and it was out last night.  Obviously this story was written before this morning's unemployment report came out.  Now, the unemployment number, 8.3%, no change, and you would not believe the way this is being reported.  Why, we are in a roaring-back economy.  We have got a recovery that's unprecedented.  Have you noticed it, Dawn?  No, I mean the reporting.  Wherever you look on radio, television, and print, you would believe that we are sitting atop the greatest powder keg of an economic recovery that there ever has been.  It is universal.

Folks, I addressed yesterday the reason that there seems to be back and forth, up and down mood changes in this country.  Really, if the media in this country were as suspicious of Democrats as they are of Republicans, if the media treated powerful Democrats with the same suspicion and curiosity and doubt and dare I say dislike and hatred as they treat Republicans, you'd have an entirely different media landscape, you'd have an entirely different national mood.  It'd be profoundly different.  But that's not the way it is.  The media is now just willing accomplices of the Democrat Party, and particularly Barack Obama.  So you get a distorted view of life in America as seen by and reported by the vast majority of what's called the mainstream media.  We call them the Drive-By Media, the State-Controlled Media.  And today is a great example.

When Bush was President and unemployment was 4-5%, my Democrat friends made the argument, "Well, people are just running out of unemployment and so they can't apply any more, that's why unemployment is down." Yep, first time that had ever happened. Couldn't possibly be that tax cuts work, people have more money to spend, therefore they buy more and more has to be produced. That would require some thought. Sooo...much easier to believe the leftist hacks and make excuses.

***Is Bill Maher getting nervous? Must be some HBO cancellations going on, but the Obamamedia will never report that. They will, however, inflate what happened with some of Rush's sponsors - some of which want to come back now that they've heard from Rush's listeners, including me.  I made the remark on Facebook that the Left blowing Rush's comments out of proportion in an attempt to destroy him might have a silver lining. It certainly gave a platform for pointing out the media's and the Democrats' hypocrisy regarding whether a conservative or a liberal says basically the same thing, no, actually what Maher has said on many occasions is far worse than what Rush said one time. No matter. They smelled blood. Unfortunately for them, what they're smelling now is their own.

***Transparency. Yeah, right. Donate enough money to Obama, and you might just land yourself a cushy job in his administration. 

More than half of Obama’s 47 biggest fundraisers, those who collected at least $500,000 for his campaign, have been given administration jobs. Nine more have been appointed to presidential boards and committees.

Shout it from the rooftops, Republicans. Nobody in the mainstream press is going to report it.

***From A Gift of Inspiration:

Yesterday's Door

I have shut the door on yesterday,
Its sorrows and mistakes.
I have locked within its gloomy walls
Past failures and mistakes.

And now I throw the key away,
And seek another room.
And furnish it with hope and smiles,
And every spring-time bloom.

No thought shall enter this abode
That has a taint of pain.
And envy, malice, and distrust
Shall never entrance gain.

I have shut the door on yesterday
And thrown the key away.
Tomorrow holds no fear for me,
Since I have found today.
